This class was tough.
Because this course is required, I have to recommend it. I am taking it for the Family Nurse Practitioner Tract and must say it, this class you have to do well. I would consider this class the "weeder" class. It is hard to critically think outside of what a "Nurse" does already but do incorporate that with individuals with multisystem problems- read the book, learn the material because you will see these diseases in real life practice.
I learned how to integrate client centered care while creating and establishing differential diagnosis for different diseases for adults and children. This course makes you critically analyze evidence and data to support your differentials. Translating research into other forms of knowledge is an outcome of this course.

Advice for students:
Because this course is mandatory I would suggest not taking it along with any other course. I have put more effort and time into this course than any thus far. It is an intense 8 weeks with a lot of reading, researching and knowledge sharing. Do not be afraid to reach out to other students, they are having the same struggle as you are. READ the material.
